    • Hi Javed,
      Try adding this in your web.config

      <add name=”HttpGet”/>
      <add name=”HttpPost”/>

    Nice article. I feel however, that you left of ASP.NET MVC (without WEB API) as a natural way of building web services. This is how we’ve been doing it for a while now, but of course we will look at doing it with Web API now that it is here.

    • Hi Trevor,
      Thank your for your message. You are right indeed. I will add this to the list as it is an important piece of technology that worth being mentioned.
